You want to hear a story about dragons? Everybody's got a favorite, right? But I've got a dragon story you haven't heard. And this one is my absolute favorite. Because this story is mine.

Dragons: The Nine Realms (sometimes abbreviated to Dragons: Nine Realms) is a Hulu and Peacock original series based off the DreamWorks Dragons Franchise. The first season of the series was released on December 23, 2021 and the second on May 5, 2022.


Set 1,300 years after the events of How to Train Your Dragon, dragons are now just a legend to the modern world. When a geological anomaly opens up an immense, miles-deep fissure in the Earth's surface, scientists from all over the world gather at a new research facility to study the mysterious phenomenon. Soon a group of misfit kids, brought to the site by their parents, uncover the truth about dragons and where they've been hiding — a secret they must keep to themselves to protect what they've discovered.

Set 1300 years after the events of HTTYD: THE HIDDEN WORLD our story takes place in the modern world, where dragons are things of fantasy, myth, and legend. After a comet nearly collides with earth and causes a great tectonic upheaving — creating an immense, mysterious fissure — scientists come from around the world and build a state of the art research facility. We’ll meet Tom Kullersen, an adventure-seeking kid, whose mom is a lead scientist at the lab, who secretly discovers that dragons exist and hidden in the fissure is an entrance to the Hidden World. Tom bonds with a Nightlight dragon who has lost his home. One by one, three other teenagers learn Tom’s secret and bond with their own dragons, forming a new group of dragon riders. Season 1 introduces us to this new world, characters, and a brand-new team of hero dragons. The riders will make startling discoveries about dragons and their world, and vow to keep the secret of their existence from those on the surface who might want to do them harm.

Douglas Sloan first hinted at the series on Twitter in March, 2020, stating that a new "dragons" series was coming set in modern times.[1][2]

From what I know there IS a new Dragons show in the works however it is NOT HTTYD related. From what I know it takes place in present times and nothing do with Berk or Hiccup.

The series was officially announced by DreamWorks on October 13, 2021 with the release of a teaser and a single promotional still.

  • DreamWorks' social sites quoted The Nine Realms supervising producer, Beth Sleven, for Native American Heritage month in November, 2021[3]
  • The series's name may be derived from the Norse cosmological concept of the "Nine Realms", the belief in nine different worlds, each inhabited by different beings, including humans, gods, giants, elves, etc. A possible explanation for how this title relates to the series is that the Hidden World May contain nine different sections or realms to be explored, as evidenced in “Follow the Lightning, Part 2”.
